It's been a long time coming and I'm still feeling the high from finally hitting my goal on the stock motor.

My previous best was a 12.04 @ 111.

First run today = 12.02 @ 113

Second pass = 12.12 @ 111

Third pass = 12.00 @ 114

Final pass = 11.96 @ 112 with a 1.658 60'

I was going to try and make one more pass, but some guy grenaded his motor. There was a little mess on the track and a rain storm was coming in. So I just decided to take what I had and be done with it.

I think there is still a little room in the 60' since I only was able to launch around 2k. I bet this car has an 11.8X in it somewhere. Awesome day for sure!!!

Riski has the vid, so we'll see if he's able to post it soon.

EDIT: Now with video goodness!

Hmm, never saw you run. Would have liked to though.

So much video is being uploaded right now, haha.

I think Joe only made one pass at 12.6X. I think he rolled into it too.

He only made one pass?!?!?!?

You probably told me that on the phone, but it sounded like you were talking to me from inside a race engine!
